Montana Love Story- Mr & Mrs Porter
I am thrilled to show you this Missoula Montana wedding! Holly and Brian’s day was absolutely beautiful, and I was honored to be a part of it.
It all started because Holly packed up her car and moved out to Missoula, Montana. Holly found a roommate to live with while exploring her new home in big sky country. This led to her roommate having a friend that he thought would be a perfect match. Long story short, I think all of those little puzzle pieces led into something pretty great.
When Holly reached out to me to document her Missoula Montana wedding, I was definitely excited, but more honored than anything. I played soccer with Holly in college, and looked up to her. I instantly got along with her super fun and down-to-earth personality. Years and life events led us both in different directions as we finished college, but Holly has always been a special person in my life. Documenting her and Brian’s love story was a pretty big deal!
They were supposed to celebrate in 2020, but I think we all know why they had to reschedule. June 26th, 2021 was finally the day for them to say their vows and celebrate in the beautiful Missoula. Their venue, Seven Mile Meadows is surrounded by mountains, open fields, and a beautiful pavilion to dance to some live music. The property has two of the cutest getting ready spaces for the couple and their wedding party. Also, you can camp on the grounds. I mean, how flipping cool!
Holly revealed her stunning dress from Davids Bridal in Maple Grove, MN that was complimented with a gorgeous hair pin made by her mom. The florals were a combination of Garden City Floral in Missoula as well as Rosauers Supermarket. Holly’s aunt did a fabulous job bringing the combinations together!
Other local vendors that helped complete this Missoula, Montana wedding was the beer from the brewery that Holly used to work in when she first moved to Missoula, Lolo Peak Brewery, along with the incredible band Heartwood Heart with the base being bluegrass but twisting in some jazz, folk, and blues played throughout the night. During the ceremony and first dance, friends Ryan & Kelsi Staninger acted as the DJs!
Seeing Brian and Holly together and their love for their boy Mason was amazing to witness. To celebrate this amazing family along with their friends was a day I will never forget. My husband and I had a chance to visit Glacier National Park , the Mission Reservoir and the National Bison Range as we arrived a few days early to enjoy exploring a new area.
I am so incredibly happy for Mr & Mrs Porter and your beautiful family. I wish you nothing but endless years of happiness, camping trips, good beer and good company!
